After being a makeup artist for over four years now, I can honestly say it’s my pride and joy. Nothing makes me happier than helping others look even more gorgeous than they already do for a special event. Make up goes deeper than the surface.

It’s about empowerment, inspiration and confidence! I specialise in face glitter makeup… means I get to make people sparkle!

I do festival glitter makeup, festival makeup and glitter body art for a number of clients and I honestly have found my passion. Here's 5 reasons I love being a makeup artist…

Meet Cool People

I have been fortunate to meet so many beautiful people. Makeup is a very intimate thing, so people tend to open up and share. I have had brides and models tell me the most amazing and sometimes inspiring stories about their lives.

Travel Lots!

Makeup has taken me all over the world. I have seen so many beautiful places in the process of doing my job. Beauty has taken me to the heart of the desert, several different continents, beaches, abandoned buildings and even right back to my own hometown.

It's Flexible

Makeup does not hold a schedule the way that most other careers do. Every bride, event, celebrity and photo shoot will have its own call time. Some may be in the middle of the night and some could be in the middle of the afternoon. I love being able to set a schedule of my choosing.

The Wardrobe

I can wear whatever I want! I am not someone who was born to wear a power suit. In fact, I don’t even own a dress shirt. The idea of wearing one makes me break out into a nervous sweat. Being an artist, I am able to dress exactly as I would like.

It’s FUN!

Being a makeup artist is ultimately fun! Which is the main reason I love it :)
